Here at the Tenth Amendment Center we’ve had a number of requests to put together a recommended-books section on the website, and while that proposition isn’t really as easy as it would seem, it’s something we’re working on. In the meantime, and especially after seeing Lew Rockwell’s “Some Books I Like” post, I thought it was a good idea to do something similar here.

What follows are 18 books that I’ve found to be insightful, influential, educational, and/or moving over the years. Some are introductory and easy to read, others take a far more scholarly approach.

If you’re looking for last-minute Christmas gifts or simply something new to tackle – I believe each and every book here would be a good addition to your reading. And best yet – anytime you go to through one of these links and make a purchase (for one of these books or anything on their site), a portion of the sale goes directly to support Thank you to everyone for your purchases on Amazon!
